About the Pub

Currently two caks beers on offer, "Our intention is to add up to an additional 2 quality cask products on a rotating basis from October of this year."

Traditional Irish, folk and jazz music sessions most weeks. See Facebook and Instagram for details. Traditional pub food menu. Large outdoor beer gardens at the rear of the pub and more seating outside the front of the pub.

March 2021 update - due to reopen post lockdown as Brendan The Navigator with new operators. "The pub will be restored by John Rynne and Michael Spurgeon true to its traditional character. Michael ran The Lamb down on Holloway Road in its salad days and was also head chef in the much-mourned Nickel in Crouch End as well as in Season Kitchen in Finsbury park. The “navigator” in the name is also intended to reflect the 19th century Irish, who laboured in the construction of England’s canal system – the “Navvies”, whose efforts inspired the regenerated “Navigator Square” beside Archway Station."

Jan 2019 update - A few months ago, the owner said that draught beer would be included in due course. It now has four (keg) draught beers. One is free to attend the premises just to consume alcoholic beverages. It is not necessary to (nor is one made to feel like a leper if not doing so) to have a meal, nor are there any other restrictions on drinking only. However, a visit to their website shows a very food led establishment.

Pub had closed in April, 2018. Interior completely gutted. The lease has been taken on by HANDH LONDON LIMITED. They have updated the premises license and it is known as Tourian Lounge.

Historic Interest
